Shopping in Florence

Christmas becomes magical in Florence. A month before the December 25 the town is decorated with Christmas lights of a thousand colors that immerse the town in an unreal atmosphere, almost fantastic. As every year, the historical center of Florence is totally closed to traffic and it is accessible only by free shuttle buses that allow the Florentines and tourists arriving in the streets filled with interesting shops with gift ideas for every kind of taste. You can imagine the rivers of people that flock to Via Calzaiuoli and Via del Corso desperately looking for gift ideas that can be funny, original and possibly convenient. The Christmas atmosphere in Florence is beautiful, all the streets are lit, and you can enjoy the smell of roasted chestnuts, people walking hurriedly through the streets of downtown with packages and parcels. The city blend perfectly with specially crafted Christmas lights to illuminate and highlight details of great beauty of historical buildings, churches and monuments.
